July 5, 2014 - A dark and stormy night serves as the backdrop for this thriller starring John Cusack, Ray Liotta and Amanda Peet. The cast also includes John C. McGinley, Alfred Molina and Rebecca De Mornay (although she doesn't last long).

Cusack plays Ed, a former cop who now works as a driver for fading actress Caroline (De Mornay). Through a series of unfortunate events, Ed and Caroline get stranded at a rundown motel in middle-of-nowhere, Nevada along with seven other people and the motel manager. They seem to be the only ones surprised when their numbers are reduced, one by one. Why were these 10 people brought together and who is killing them off? It's a mystery Ed must solve even if he doesn't want to.

Overall review: *** Can't really say too much without giving everything away. Suffice it to say it's a competently done thriller with a twist at the end. Definitely worth a look.
